I've been trying to build a chatserver on a LAN.
In my chat server the server is a Win98 machine and the cleint is an applet in another win 98 machine.
My problem is ,that my applet cannot make a socket connection to the server when run in IE , even if the page is loaded on the server machine itself.
Although the applet works fine when I run it using appletviewer on the server.Even the html page itself runs fine in Appletviewer making the socket connection to the server easily.

I've tried changing all the settings of IExplorer Java Settings,but it's still not working.
How can I make the socket connection run in IE ?
I'd appreciate any help .
Thanx in advance.
I agree. Here's the link:
